LAS VEGAS, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nelson Global Products has launched an industry-breakthrough in the protection of chrome plated exhaust components, called BLUESTOP™. The new, multi-step clear ceramic coating process – with temperature resistance of greater than 1000 degrees -- addresses a growing problem of exhaust temperature-related chrome discoloration.
By mid-2014, the company will offer the BLUESTOP process on its chrome-plated exhaust components, from mufflers to heat shields. The product was announced and displayed here at ConExpo, a global exhibition of off-highway and construction vehicles attended by hundreds of thousands of business managers.
"Unsightly discoloration of chrome has plagued vehicle designers and end-users for years," said Tom Gosnell, CEO of Nelson Global Products. "The high temperatures, generated by recent changes in emissions technology, have threatened to end the highly popular use of chromed exhaust pipes for vehicle applications."
As chrome-plated components are exposed to surface contaminants and multiple heat cycles, the unintended effect has been the surface "coloring" that ranges from gold to deep blue. As manufacturers have listened to customers' complaints about the discoloration, Nelson gathered its advanced engineering team to develop a solution to the problem before it begins.
"Not only does BLUESTOP™ prevent discoloration, it also provides lasting protection from surface contaminants and significantly increases corrosion resistance," added Nelson's director of engineering, Rob Schellin. "Our customers and partners have responded enthusiastically to the benefits we've demonstrated with this new process."
Additionally, Nelson will release a new line of protective ceramic coatings -- in a variety of popular designer colors.
